dc.description In 2005, Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries conducted a needs assessment to determine the best approach for connecting students with the wealth of information available to them through the library. The needs assessment revealed that undergraduates are assignment driven and focused on particular courses. To address these needs, OSU Libraries developed Interactive Course Assignment (ICA) pages. ICA pages help students quickly target research tools and information to successfully complete their assignments. OSU Libraries developed a tool to easily create, manage, and publish ICA web pages. The tool was built on Ruby on Rails, a lightweight, yet powerful open-source framework for web development. The ICA creation tool enables librarians with minimal technical expertise to create dynamic web pages that integrate Web 2.0 features, chat and RSS feeds, etc. with traditional library content, such as catalogs and article databases. In this session we will discuss the benefits of course-specific web pages and the need for the ICA creation tool. We will focus on requirements, design, implementation and use of the tool, including lessons learned and a live demo. en
